DIY Sugar Scrub

 

What does your skin crave this summer?

If it could use a little exfoliation before you hydrate and moisturize after those beach days, give it what it deserves with the skin-loving fun of a salt or sugar scrub.

The Sugar Scrub Quick Facts

  • Sugar body scrubs are popular for their exfoliating and moisturizing properties, two essential elements of any skincare routine. 
  • Our skin is constantly collecting a layer of dead skin cells that it will eventually release, unless of course it decides to hang around and clog pores - no fun.
  • The basic sugar scrub can help to exfoliate, or scrub away, that layer of dead skin, leaving the healthy glow behind that we all seek while adding moisture via  oils & butters your skin will drink right up.

Want to try your own? Let's get started!

Grab a few key ingredients and you are ready to go. You will need a clean glass or stainless steel bowl and measuring set, plus a spoon. Finally, choose a jar to store your scrub in that will leave it airtight once you are finished.

Ready? 

  • 3/4 cup of sugar - You can use organic cane, granulated, brown sugar or sugar in the raw.
  • 1/4 cup of oil - You can use a variety here as well: grape seed, olive, fractionated coconut.
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Vitamin E Oil
  • Mix up your sugar then add the oils in a little at a time until you reach the texture you desire.
  • Store in an airtight jar and keep it on the counter.
  • Use a small scoop to exfoliate in the shower or bath.
  • Rinse and pat dry.
  • That's it!
